Juvéderm Facial Fillers
Time has a way of leaving traces of its passage in many areas of our bodies. We see gray in our hair, lines in our skin, and yellowing of our teeth. Fortunately, patients of Maniscalco Cosmetic & General Dentistry in Birmingham, AL can turn to us for a host of easy, safe, and appealing solutions. Consider the option of Juvéderm Voluma in Birmingham.
What is Juvéderm Voluma? It’s a more advanced way of dealing with deep set lines and wrinkles in the skin of the face. While we typically offer patients worried about their facial aesthetics a treatment such as Botox, there can be many instances when they need something more effective. Botox relaxes the nerves, allowing the skin to smooth out. As we age, though, we lose elasticity and plumpness in the skin, so fillers are needed. Juvéderm Voluma is a dermal filler that volumizes and fills out the skin, reversing the signs of aging.
Filling in the lines, Juvéderm Voluma can smooth out skin that has been damaged by sun exposure, smoking, or time, but it also features a re-contouring agent that helps skin that has lost its volume of fat. In other words, if you opt to use this injectable, it will allow your face to be temporarily restored to a more youthful, dewy appearance. Juvéderm Voluma is only available to our patients aged 21 and up.

Juvéderm Vollure XC® in Birmingham

Juvéderm Volbella® in Birmingham
Volbella is the newest addition to the Juvéderm family. It is designed to rejuvenate the skin with a more effective and long-lasting formula. We use Volbella to enhance the size of lips and to minimize perioral lines or fine lines around the lips. We can also use this to hide dark circles or other under eye-hollowing issues.
Volbella treatment uses Lidocaine, a powerful local anesthetic. Your treatment with Volbella will be less painful than traditional formulas because this numbing agent is included. The results can give you a younger face that is long-lasting and natural looking.
